NBC's REVOLUTION Debut Sets Time-Shifting Records

The September 17 premiere of NBC's new Monday drama REVOLUTION has set time-shifting records for the network and for debuting series on any network.

In "live plus three day" ratings from Nielsen Media Research that count time-shifted viewing through the first three days after a show's live telecast, the "Revolution" premiere grew by 1.36 rating points from its "live plus same day" rating (a 4.09) to its "live plus three day" rating (5.45).

That 1.36-point increase is the biggest gain going from L+SD to L+3 for any NBC telecast ever. It's also the biggest increase for any series premiere on any network ever, with the previous high being 1.14 last fall for Fox's "The New Girl"). 

The only series on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox ever to gain 1.36 rating points or more going from "live plus same day" to "live plus three day" have been "Modern Family," "Grey's Anatomy," "The New Girl," "Big Bang Theory," the post-Super Bowl telecast of "Glee" and the first appearance by Ashton Kutcher on "Two and a Half Men."

"Revolution" has now reached a total of 24.2 million viewers who've watched all or part of last week's premiere or the Wednesday encore.

In "live plus three day" results, "Revolution's 5.4 rating in adults 18-49 makes it NBC's top 10 p.m. ET premiere in nearly eight years, since "Medium" (6.3 on January 3, 2005), excluding previews.<
